News of the crime in the city’s jewelry district shocked the region’s Iranian Jewish community, to which Natanzadeh belonged, Forward reports.

“I have received multiple phone calls from different people in the community who are worried and had been telling their family members who work in downtown to come home after hearing of this killing,” Dara Abaei, leader of the Los Angeles-based Jewish Unity Network, was quoted saying.

The Jewelers’ Security Alliance is offering a $2,500 reward for information in the case. Anyone with a tip can reach the Los Angeles Police Department at 877-527-3247 or JSA at 212-687-0328 or [email protected].

Thinking of Retirement? This Jeweler Went for the Company That Shares His Values

Richard Frank of Goldstein’s Jewelry in Mobile, Ala., had worked in his family’s store since he was 13-years old. As its owner, he was proud to be at the helm of Mobile’s oldest jewelry store, an AGS, IJO and RJO member business. But there comes a time in every jeweler’s life when a decision must be made regarding the future. And for Frank, that meant turning the store over to new owners. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale, a decision, he says, made a long time ago. “Their reputation is such that all the things we value are what they value,” he says. And the results surpassed Frank’s own expectations. Would he recommend Wilkerson for other jewelers who are considering a going-out-of-business or retirement sale? “If you’re contemplating a sale to maximize the return on your business, there is no one else in the industry that I could even think of recommending.”
